My good friend from college, Linda Levy, is a wonderful cook and baker.
She descends from a long line of accomplished cooks -- including her dad!
This cake is fabulously moist, nutritious and a delicious hit with children
because of the chocolate chips. It needs no icing -- just dust it with
powdered sugar when cooled. Wonderful for parties, it will remain moist for
3-4 days if covered with foil. It's a great birthday-cake alternative to
layer cakes with gobs of gooey frosting. You can stencil "Happy Birthday"
with the powdered sugar, or write over the powdered sugar with chocolate tube
- 2 large
bunches of carrots
- 1 1/3
- 2 cups
- 4 eggs
- 3 cups
- 2 1/2
- 4 teaspoons
- 1 teaspoon
- 1 package
semi-sweet chocolate chips
oven to 350°F.
2. Have kids peel and help grate the carrots with a box grater. This will
take a while but it does keep them busy! Alternatively, you can have them
peel the carrots, and then you can cut them up and process them in a food
processor until chopped fine.
3. In a large mixing bowl, have kids mix the oil and sugar. Then add the
grated carrots and mix again with a wooden spoon. Little ones can now crack
the egg and add them, mixing well. Next have kids measure the dry
ingredients (but not the chocolate chips), adding them one by one before
mixing them up together.
4. When the batter is well-blended, have children add the chocolate chips;
mixing them in thoroughly. Let kids grease a large tube pan and pour in the
batter. Bake for 1 - 1 1/2 hours or until a toothpick inserted into the
center comes out dry.
